Giving Back

Eighth Annual Frozen Turkey Food Drive Ready to Roll Nov. 22; Event Benefits Community FoodBank of NJ

SUMMIT, NJ - In what has become a Hilltop City holiday giving tradition, the Eighth Annual Frozen Turkey Food Drive is ready to roll -- literally -- into Summit. The event, which takes place from 1-4 p.m. at the Summit Diner, benefits the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.
Frozen turkeys, canned foods, and monetary donations are welcome.
Spearheaded by Other Fellow First Chairman Brett Haire, the event asks the City of Summit to help New Jersey families in distress around Thanksgiving and, each year, residents have turned out in force to share their generosity with the less fortunate, contributing more than 20 tons of turkeys, more than 12 tons of groceries, and approaching $100,000 in cash.
For the second consecutive year, a fun Turkey Bicycle Ride through Summit and Chatham -- beginning in front of Hilltop Bicycles, stopping at Kings Food Market on Springfield Avenue, and finishing at the Summit Diner -- will be held.
Riders are asked to bring $20 to purchase a turkey at Kings, and will receive a free, commemorative T-Shirt, with warm drinks and snacks waiting for the riders at the Diner "finish line."
Riders, who must be 18 years of age or older, can register at, should bring a backpack to transport their turkey, and are reminded to wear a helmet and weather-appropriate clothing. The ride begins at 10 a.m. at 314 Springfield Avenue. At 10:30 a.m., an indoor spin class option, at Momentum Cycling and Fitness, will also be held..
Interested parties who would like to make a monetary donation, but are unable to do so on November 22, can drop-off checks -- made payable to the Other Fellow First Foundation -- at the Summit Diner, or mail them to:
Brett Haire
47 Summit Avenue
Summit, NJ

The Summit Diner is located at 1 Union Place.

Mr. Market is convinced the FAANGs are impervious to a sell-off. “Its different this time” is ringing loud and clear, but will the outcome really be that ...
